On-Demand Web Events
This webcast brings together food-scientists working in LCHE with safety experts and food processing experts. 
  • List Price: Free
Meeting Details :

Adult-use LCHE legalization in multiple states has resulted in manufacturers and regulators under pressure to achieve a well-regulated market despite the Federal CSA (Controlled Substances Act).  Compounding the challenge, infused edibles were unexpected or discounted, leading to incomplete guidelines and regulations.  With Federal agencies unable to participate, states and producers are left with few experts to guide policy.  The webinar will provide an overview for constructive participation by food technologists.

Participants will benefit from reviewing examples of applied processing for infused edibles as well as gaps in state food-safety structures applicable to the new segment.  Attendees with food-safety responsibilities will be able to discuss potential critical control points for infused product.  

Attendees will be able to:
1. Understand common processing techniques for infused edibles in the LCHE segment
2. Appreciate gaps in current food-control and food-safety plans
3. Understand best practices and scale-up resources to assure compliance
